saturday night // bowling at rowans
20 Feb 2012
If I can please alert you to my score of a perfect 100! Not quite the 300 pros score, but y'know... I doubled my score from the previous game.
And again, my totally talented friend Aaron made a video of us and, dare I say it, but we look pretty cool! Watching it made me feel like I wanted to hang out with all the cool people in that video. Is that a bit lame? Oh well, have a look. Excuse the extreme close up of my face...
church street // stoke newington
While Mon was here, we went for a long stroll to Church Street in Stoke Newington. It's a lovely little street packed with vintage stores and yummy places to eat.
This is Clissold Park where the snow hadn't quite melted.
That stuff is frozen water. Yup.
Orange, carrot and ginger juice at The Blue Legume and In the Sylvanian Store. Wall to wall Sylvanian animals!
Samples of cake and a cup of tea was just what we needed after a long afternoon walk, and I picked this gorgeous black dress up for £10 in one of the vintage stores!
Then it was off to Big Red for nachos before a spot of bowling... (another post to come and it includes a video!)

While Laura's ladywife (aka best female friend) Monica was staying with us, we went for a leisurely walk through Finsbury Park to get to the BIG Sainsbury's and pick up Henry. Large grocery stores are somewhat of a novelty in London. You need to trek to the suburbs to find one!
Here's some BS (before snow) and AS (after snow) of Finsbury Park.
happy valentine's day // happy singles awareness day
15 Feb 2012
Happy Valentine's Day/Happy Singles Awareness Day! Or, as my friend pointed out, its acronym is: SAD. Hope you all have a lovely day filled with love, whether it be from your lover (ha, I always pronounce it in my head like Prince sings it), friends, family or, like me, your dad. Dad usually gives me a card and a big hug.
Today is also the birthday of three of my friends, so happy birthday to Tom, Lisa and Jackson! The Villas (what we call our house) are making Tom a birthday dinner and cake - Mexican and a Victoria Sponge because we're multicultural like that.
Oh, and the photo above is a cookie from my manager. He bought them for all of us and left them on our desks. Naw!
london // let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
9 Feb 2012
It snowed for the first time this winter last Friday night and my oh my, what a lot of snow! It's so magical and pretty and fun while it's thick and powdery, but then it starts melting and gets icy and muddy and is not so fun. Anyway, on Saturday morning Laura and I walked to Finsbury Park and took some photos since we thought we'd better make the most of the snow.
Our friend Aaron was taking some photos the night before while it was actually snowing and because he's got some amazing skills... all of his photos look amazing!
